East Lake Update 6/10/19

Small Chironomid patterns and Leeches are still the way to find fish on East. Things are warming up quickly but the water is still cold and I wouldn’t expect to see too much in the way of Callibaetis for another couple of weeks. We’ve been seeing great numbers on East so far this year and …

Crane Prairie Update 6/10/19

The great spring fishing we saw on Crane has led right into a fantastic start to the summer season for one of the area’s most sought after stillwater fisheries. We’ve been consistently receiving reports from our guides and shop customers of excellent fishing, and there is no reason it should slow down anytime soon. We’re …

Crooked River Update 6/10/19

Prime summer flows are upon us now, and the Crooked has been sitting pretty steady around 200-250cfs. These water levels provide excellent structure throughout the first 10 miles below Bowman Dam. There are abundant riffles, gravel bars, and pocket water that all produce fish consistently and can be fished effectively with a variety of techniques. …

Upper Deschutes Update 6/10/19

The Upper D is fishing well, especially in the upper stretches where the water is cooler and small. There are plenty of small-mid sized fish that will aggressively take a terrestrial or attractor pattern throughout the day. Fishing a dry dropper with a Mayfly nymph in the #14-18 range will maximize chances of finding fish …

Lower Deschutes Update 6/10/19

We’re wrapping up another Salmonfly season on the Lower Deschutes. Things got a little interesting this year with the cold and cloudy weather that took hold right as the bugs were really starting to move around on the banks, but all in all the fishing met expectations and there were plenty of good dry fly …

Hosmer Update 6/10/19

Things are really heating up on Hosmer and we’ve started to see a ton of Callbaetis, as well as some good Damsel activity. There is opportunity to find fish on dries throughout the day, and Callibaetis nymphs below an indicator are producing fish consistently. Chironomids and Balanced Leeches have also been top producers in the …

Lava Lake Update 6/10/19

There are good numbers of medium sized fish to be found in Lava, which has been fishing well since it opened. Most of the feeding activity has been subsurface, although there has been opportunity to find fish on dries during an afternoon Callibaetis hatch and evening Caddis hatches. Fishing small, dark Chironomids, Callibaetis nymphs, and …

Lower Deschutes Update 5/29/19

There is a lot of Salmonfly activity from Warm Springs Down on the Lower Deschutes. As expected, we’ve experienced some great days and a few tough days trying to endice big redsides to the surface. With the cooler weather we saw the progress of the hatch slow for a little while, which has meant the …

Upper Deschutes Update 5/29/19

It’s as good a time as any to be fishing the Upper Deschutes. We’ve been having good days on all portions of the upper river, primarily fishing subsurface with nymph rigs and small streamers. A variety of Mayfly and Caddis nymphs have been producing, as well as egg patterns as the Rainbows finish their spawn. …
